Sarah is hosting a celebration of friday finishes. I am joining with my finish of a quilt centre that I’ve been haggling with all week. The quilt is for the baby of my daughter’s good friend. It’s the first of her friends to have a baby in fact, so it’s kind of a special occasion. The baby is 6 months old already, so the promise to make this quilt is already a bit aged. Nevermind. The quilt must be finished by February 4th because the quilt has a ‘ride’ to daughter’s house the following morning, so the pressure is ON!
I could have picked a simpler way to piece the centre but I was dying to try this technique I came up with using strips to create the diamonds. I’m sure it’s not a NEW way to do it but I haven’t seen it done. It popped into my head so I had to try it out. I’ve documented the process if you’re interested in the last weeks posts.
Now that the flimsy is done I’m thinking about the back. Click once or twice to get a better view. The fabric on the left is safe, maybe a bit insipid. The fabric on the right has too much yellow? Any comments?
